Five books on unemployment

At the Independent Alice-Azania Jarvis compiled a brief reading list on unemployment.

The title on the list under "humour:"
'Then We Came to the End' by Joshua Ferris

Ferris's first novel chronicles the mini-dramas of life in a Chicago advertising agency. With redundancies looming, the office workers set about trying to look busy, despite the lack of work. Both funny and poignant, Ferris captures life in a white-collar office with total aplomb.
Read about the book on the list under the "classic" heading.
